Linton's Enchanted Gardens debuts organic café
Linton’s Enchanted Gardens now offers an on-site daily café that incorporates organic and locally-grown ingredients into its menu.
The Garden Café’s diverse options are made with fruits, herbs and veggies grown nearby in Bristol at a 40-acre nursery. Some of the herbs are grown right outside the café kitchen’s back door, according to information provided by Jennifer Keen, executive assistant at Linton’s.
Breakfast is served from 8 to 11 a.m. and features items like gourmet oatmeal, a seasonal fruit kabob, a banana wrap and freshly baked croissants.
Lunch is available at 11 a.m. with garden-inspired salads, sandwiches and wraps. There are also specialty soups and focaccia bread baked with herbs, olives, roasted red peppers and asiago cheese.
The Enchanted Garden Sandwich is listed on the menu as the café’s “personal favorite.” It includes honey-smoked turkey, heirloom tomatoes, spinach and special horseradish sauce on a hearty cranberry walnut bread. It’s served with veggie chips, house mango lime salsa and house spicy dill pickles.
Breakfast items cost between $1.49 and $4.29 and lunch and dinner items are priced from $1.99 to $9.99.
The Garden Café also boasts a robust drink lineup with specialty coffee drinks, teas, retro soda and soy milk options. The children’s menu includes grilled cheese with fresh-baked bread and a veggie and fruit plate with sliced cheddar cheese.
Café hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Linton’s Enchanted Gardens is at 315 C.R. 17, Elkhart.
